LFD Tooltip

Displays the status dialog from an LDB instead of the minimap icon.

Also, thanks to Antiarc, display a nice tooltip showing how long a role can expect to wait for a group, also shows a text based status for each roll for your proposed group.

    And I'm so sorry, I don't know why I said anchor to my mouse. I DO NOT anchor to my mouse is what I meant to say. I use Docking Station as my display, and TipTac for my tooltips. I *think* I have TipTac set to use the parent anchor, but I'll have to get in game tomorrow and see. The teleport tip always pops up to the bottom left, no matter where on Docking Station I put it, and the other tooltips associated with Broker_LFD are where they should be according to my TipTac settings.

    Sorry for the confusion, its been a really long day.

    Hmm, I also anchor to my mouse. I'll have to do some testing to see what's going on, I have no problems the tooltip is right there when I click.

    I actually mean the "Teleport In/Out of Dungeon" tooltip that appears on a click when you're queued with a full group.

    @xtoq: Do you mean the frame with the 5 role icons? Or the one with the avg wait time?

    TBH, I think that might be a bug within Titan, as I use Docking Station and the big status window comes up if I mouseover the plugin.

    Question though, could you make the actual tooltip follow the same anchor as the rest of my tooltips in my LDB display? Currently I have my tooltips set to show at my mouse, but the LFD one shows to the bottom left, just as it would if it were still on the minimap. I can post a screenshot if you like.

    I meant the status window that opens when you click the button. The big one. It only disappears when you right click the button on titan panel again. I wondered if you can make it show on demand or is it connected with the join screen that comes up when the group is full. Or can you make it disappear after a short time. The window that Pseudopath linked in his ticket :D Thank you for sparing your time for the greatest addon that came out since 3.3 :D Keep up the good work.

    Fair enough, could have sworn it was smaller by default! Oh well, if its not too much faffin about I would certainly make use of a resizer, my screen realestate is high value ;¬D

    @Pseudopath & Donturco: Hmm, I'll test with no addons running at all. But that is the only size I've ever seen that status window. I would like to make a configuration screen so folks can configure to display the wait time and/or the THDDD on the button, I could also include option possibly to resize the status window if you don't like it so big, but like I said, I believe blizzard designed it that large.

    @Donturco: Do you mean the tooltip that shows the "Avg Wait Time" like in the screenshot above? That one disappears just fine for me. However if you mean the one that has the clickable text for Telporting or Leaving the Queue and stuff, that is a DropDownMenu, again something I took exactly from the way the LFD button works on the minimap that blizzard designed. That said we all know Blizzards designs can be improved upon :)

    Hi Ulic, Great addon. i have been LF something like this since patch 3.3. Thank you. I would like to ask if you can add the avg wait time, end of the line LFD:THDDD 10m so we don't have to mouse over it to see. Also when I mouse over it the tooltip shows but does not disappear unless I right click the LDB on titan panel. Is there a way that u can disable tooltip on demand or make it disappear after like 5secs. My tooltip also is big in the middle of the screen. Again thank you for the great work :D Using version r21.
